Online Home-Learning Personal Licence Course & Exam


This online Personal Licence Course (APLH) covers all the information you’ll need, and includes the officially recognised exam – for you to sit at home or in your workplace.

With this course you’ll also be assigned a dedicated online trainer/invigilator to answer any questions whilst home-learning, or prior to the exam.

Train at your convenience, in the comfort of your home or workplace using any PC, Mac or mobile device (Windows, Android, iPhone, iPad or OS X, etc).

Includes all of the following:

  • Online home-learning course.
  • 88-page downloadable handbook.
  • Dedicated trainer to answer any questions prior to the exam or whilst home-learning.
  • Exam via remote invigilation – conduct the examination at home under normal exam conditions set by Ofqual.
  • Recognised certified certificate – so you can apply for your personal licence when normal conditions return.


Once you’ve purchased this course, we will email you an access code, username and password, which you can use to log into your home-learning training area. Then, simply follow the on-screen instructions.

Because the APLH is an accredited qualification, regulated by Ofqual, on completion of the course you will have to sit an invigilated exam. This can now be done remotely at home. As the government increases precautionary measures, we are mirroring their efforts by providing you with digital invigilation to make sure you stay on track in achieving your qualification whilst we are in these unusual times.

Our distance test conditions enable everyone to adhere to government advice by sitting isolated examinations at home or in the workplace.

You will be assigned one of our trainers to support you through the entire process. Our trainer can help answer any questions and help you prepare for your exam.

Full instructions will be e-mailed on booking.



The access code will be emailed to you within 24 hours of purchase or earlier if purchased during office hours (10am to 4pm) If this course is purchased outside of these hours, or during weekends or Bank Holidays, the access code will be sent once the office is open.

Remote invigilation – How it works

Once you have completed your learning, you will need to contact your dedicated tutor. They will then register you onto the system with an agreed time and date for the online examination.

At the time and date allocated for your examination, you need to find an isolated area, where you will not be interrupted, to complete your invigilation under the required conditions.

Log on to the digital invigilation platform with your unique credentials, you will register by entering your details and ID confirmation.

You will be required to prove you are complying with exam conditions. You will need to use your smartphone and webcam to film around your environment to show you are in an isolated area with no notes or learning aids. You will then be required to place your smartphone in an area that films you through the completion of your exam.
